Yesterday I picked up some Paintpots from MAC's Posh Paradise collection. I was very excited to see MAC releasing colourful Paintpots again, because they are my favourite eyeshadow bases of all times. There are three purple tones in the collection, which surprises me. MAC did not come out with purple Paintpots before and now there are three different ones. Yes, they are different. Of course I love purple and I had to get them all!
The colours I picked are the following: Imaginary, Idyllic, Hyper Violet, Treasure Hunt and Half-Wild and i can't wait to try them all.
Idyllic is IMO a dupe for the discontinued Artifact Paintpot. If you like red/burgundy/wine eyemakeup you should definitly check out Idyllic because it is a perfect base for gorgeous looks.

There were three other Paintpots in this collection. Nubile (a fleshtone) is a quite hyped product. Bluntly I don't get the buzz about it, it reminds me of Painterly, which is a permanent colour. So I did not get it.
Genuine Treasure was too glittery for my taste, so I passed on this as well.
Finally there was Pure Creation, a mid-tone blue colour, which reminded me a lot of the MUFE Aqua Colour in No. 20, which I already own, so I did not get this one either.
All Paintpots in this collection are beautyful, don't get me wrong. But I don't have enough storage space for so many eyeshdow bases. This is logistical problem, which is going to be solved soon when I move into my new house.
Did you get any Paintpots from this collection?
